NHS Body urges sharing experiences of young person Mental Health Support
4th October 2021

Healthwatch Shropshire and Healthwatch Telford & Wrekin have launched a joint campaign to gather information on young people’s experiences of Mental Health Crisis Services since 2020.

During the pandemic there has been a nationwide increase in the number of young people accessing mental health services to help deal with a range of conditions such as eating disorders, depression and anxiety.

Young people are currently supported in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin primarily through Bee U, an Emotional Health and Wellbeing service, however, a range of other services are also used such as A&E, The Redwoods Centre, Princess Royal Hospital and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. The aim of the project is to gather young people’s experiences and any suggestions they may have on how services could be improved.

Healthwatch are working with the Shrewsbury & Telford NHS Hospital Trust (SaTH) and the Midlands Foundation Trust Partnership (MPFT) which provides specialist mental health services and social care services to contact young people who have used the Crisis Services system. However Healthwatch would also like to hear from those who have provided support to those young people, parents, friends, carers and professionals with experience in the sector.

 

For anyone who has experience or would like to share their views, they can either contact Healthwatch Shropshire or Telford & Wrekin depending on where they live or received care, or complete our online survey at:
